Daily stressors can take a toll on our mental health. While many people turn to reading or turning on a screen, the team at Evant, Texas’ gorgeous safari park has other ways to turn off the gloom and improve your emotional health.
A safari park is a wonderful place to connect with nature and wildlife. Traveling through large open enclosures and getting close to incredible animals can be an amazing and even spiritual experience. Time spent immersed in nature at a safari park can provide many mental and emotional benefits.
Let’s take a look at how our 250-acre tour can change your mindset!
Safari Park Tours Reduce Stress and Anxiety
Being out in nature and away from the stresses of everyday life is relaxing and soothing for the mind and body. Cruising through green spaces and watching animals in their natural habitat has been shown to lower stress hormones like cortisol.
Just taking a break from work, screens, traffic, and the other anxieties of daily life to spend a day at the safari park can be rejuvenating.
Taking in the sights, sounds, and smells of the natural world triggers positive physiological changes. Breathing deeper, lowering heart rate and blood pressure, and simply feeling calmer and more peaceful are common effects of exploring nature.
Safari parks are beautiful, interesting, and even awe-inspiring places that can provide much-needed mental relief.
Boost Your Mood and Fight Depression With Family Time
Research has consistently shown that spending time in nature boosts mood and can help fight depression. The reasons are complex, but immersing in green spaces seems to trigger uplifting chemical changes in the brain.
Exploring our safari park exposes you to sights and experiences that inspire positivity. Watching animals interact, seeing vibrant flowers and plants, hearing birds chirping – the park’s landscapes simply put you in a better mood.
Sunshine and fresh air also benefit mental health. A day spent outdoors exposes you to helpful vitamin D, energizing daylight, and mood-lifting negative ions. Time in nature simply makes people feel happier and more positive.
Fostering Mindfulness and Calm Presence
Nature has inherent qualities that make it easier for our minds to rest in a state of engaged, meditative awareness. Safari parks provide ideal landscapes for practicing mindfulness.
Traversing slowly through the park’s trails and exhibits, you can focus completely on your senses. Breathe in the fresh air and watch the animals’ natural movements and behaviors. Listen to the sounds of wildlife around you.

Our open sensory experience brings you into the present moment, the here and now. Practicing mindful presence reduces stress, anxiety, and depression. Let our safari park help you achieve calm, centered mental states.
Promoting Overall Well-Being
Research conclusively shows that time in nature is vital for mental, emotional, and even physical health. Our minds and bodies are adapted to the natural world. Being immersed in beautiful, interesting natural environments fulfills deep human needs.
A day spent on our safari park trails and enjoying a night in our RV park or available cabins can fundamentally enhance your well-being. You can destress from modern anxieties, boost your mood, feel awe and gratitude, and practice mindfulness.
